Holiday Shopping with LivingSocial: Yeah, You Can Gift That



Banish the cardigans, neckties, and fruitcakes from your holiday shopping list. This season LivingSocial is your go-to shopping destination for gifting the unexpected. Giving unique experiences — not just the usual items — is easier than ever using our website and mobile apps. From hot air ballooning to cooking classes to sipping on hot cocoa at a winter cabin retreat… yeah, you can gift that at LivingSocial.

Our new Gift Shop is open so you can shop amazing deals categorized for every recipient on your list. Delight those people on your list who’d love to receive a cool experience rather than another scented candle. Black Friday and Cyber Monday will feature offers from some of your favorite brands and national retailers – and watch for our promo codes and check our coupons page for extra discounts throughout the season.

More of a “late to the game” gifter? We’ve got your back. Not only can you schedule a deal to be gifted on any date, you can also send them immediately with our easy digital delivery options. Aunt Agnes will never know that the massage at her local salon was kind of last minute.

Great deals are live now and throughout the holiday season at LivingSocial.

LivingSocial Helps Shoppers Stay Connected with New Businesses

Good news for merchants also means good news for you. LivingSocial is now arming our thousands of merchant partners with a new suite of communications tools with the launch of Connect today. Connect enables businesses of all sizes and industry to have more ways to easily engage customers like you through LivingSocial, as well as give you great new reasons to become a loyal fan of those businesses. With Connect, our merchants can:

  • Send you personalized thank you and reminder emails about your deal;
  • Follow up after you redeem your voucher, with potential for additional incentives when you return as a customer, like a free menu item or half off a new service; and
  • Review customer ratings and respond to comments and questions one-on-one.

Between you and your chosen merchants, LivingSocial Connect just might be the start of a beautiful new relationship.

America’s Most Thrill-Seeking Cities


Who lives on the edge? You know, the kind of person that really relishes in risk and the promise of adventure.

LivingSocial wanted to know where the gutsiest guys and gals lived in the US and what they did for that rush of excitement.

To answer the question, we looked at all of the most adventurous deals and escapes (think race-car driving, hot air ballooning, flying lessons, rock climbing, race entries, surfing and diving, etc.) purchased this year by LivingSocial shoppers.

While sporty states like Colorado made the cut, the top adventure-seeking city will surprise you!

Topping our list was the City of Brotherly Love. Yep, Philadelphia is the city that seeks the most thrill — perhaps everyone there is of the Rock-strength mentality? Beyond Philly, Southern California is home to the second, third and eighth place cities and counties (San Diego, LA and Orange County), making California the top state. And in the age old East Coast/West Coast rivalry, it’s close, but the West Coast is home to slightly more thrill seeking cities/counties including San Diego, LA, Denver, Orange County and Phoenix.

Here are the cities and areas that are home to the most thrill seekers – no double-dog-dare required:

1.       Philadelphia, Penn.

2.       San Diego, Calif.

3.       Los Angeles, Calif.

4.       Denver, Colo.

5.       Washington D.C.

6.       Chicago, Ill.

7.       Atlanta, Ga.

8.       Orange County, Calif.

9.       Miami, Fla.

10.     Phoenix, Ariz.


The top five thrilling-seeking states are:

1.       California

2.       Pennsylvania

3.       Colorado

4.       Illinois

5.       Georgia


One thing most these thrill-seekers can agree on – no matter where they live — is taking to the water for a shot of adrenaline. The top four adventure deals include: kayaking, deep-sea fishing, and whitewater rafting.

No matter where you live, put yourself to the challenge by checking that next adventure off your bucket list. LivingSocial’s deals may be just the ticket.
